Research Activities (Division of Applied Life Sciences)


Division of Applied Life Sciences comprises 11 laboratories of the Faculty of Agriculture, 2 laboratories of the Institute for Chemical Research, and 3 laboratories of the Wood Research Institute, as listed below. The education and research activities of this division are based on the basic and applied studies in life
sciences: e.g., scientific understanding of biological aspects and biological, chemical, biochemical,
physiological, molecular biological, and physicochemical approaches to the biofunctions (BIOSCIENCE),
and application of this knowledge for bioproduction, manufacturing and processing of subsistence 
chemicals including (agricultural) medicines, and foods, (BIOTECHNOLOGY). Thus, this division covers 
leading areas in bioscience and biotechnology.
